Family: Mother's Day slaying suspect had problems

May 9, 2011 12:18:00 PM - thestate.com
The grandmother of a 17-year-old South Carolina son charged with slaying his mother on Mother's Day says her grandson was a sweet boy but never seemed normal.

Fran McEachern told The Associated Press on Monday she last saw Joshua David McEachern last summer and that the teen has mental issues.

A judge on Monday denied bond for McEachern on a murder charge. Authorities say the teen shot his mother, 59-year-old Kathy McEachern, Sunday night at the family's Greenville home.

Authorities say the teen called 911 to say he had shot his mother and brother, 21-year-old Daniel McEachern, with a handgun. Kathy McEachern was pronounced dead on the scene. Daniel McEachern was listed in critical condition in a hospital.

It was not clear if Joshua McEachern had an attorney.
